department under presidents, both george w. bush and bill clinton. why do you make these assertions coming back from iran? did you have high-level meetings in which you were privy to information our state department is not privy to? >> well, we met with a range of people. we met with people from the government but students at the university. we were actually invited by the university of tehran. we met with students, professors. we met with a range of people in iran, and what we come back with is a sense that walking in the streets of tehran, going to the university, going into the marketplace, this is not a country that is on the brink of implosion, that sanctions are somehow going to cripple and force it to concede to american or any other demands. and this is something that when we did the research for our book, we found historically, we have seen american so-called iran experts predict literally since the founding of the republic of iran back in 1979, that this political order is on the brink of implosion or regime change. this is something coming back from our most recent trip to iran.

impeach him because he had executive orders. i can just say this? papa bush, george h.w. bush had an executive order that stopped the imports of assault weapons. that was back, if i'm not mistaken in 1989. so don't tell me executive orders is just an obama thing, it's not. let's go the substance of this thing. would it have stopped the heinous tragic crime? is it dealing with the mental illness? is it dealing with the cultural issues? >> clearly, larry, you're absolutely right the president does have the power of the executive order. let's see the president use that power not only to issue executive orders but also as the thought leader in the country really to bring focus on what is the common factor in all of these dreadful things. i'm a mother, i'm a doctor. it's unimaginable and unthinkable and that is deviant behavior. these are criminal minds perpetrating these crimes. we need to have an effective approach to that problem. guns are inas a nm-- inanimate . >> family break up. the fact that there's no faith or heaven forbid prayer in elementary school. is there enough of that
. george w. bush, when he was signing no child left behind did that in front of a school of children in ohio. you've even got ben quayle, the former congressman from arizona got into some trouble when he sent out a campaign flier with two children on it that looked like they were his daughters but it turned out he doesn't have any kids and they were his brother's children. >> bill: lindsey graham used his sister's kids as props. that's different. >> children, there's no precedent there saying children are completely off-limits in politics. i think the question here is a lot of times they've been brought forward to these kind of presidential conferences after a policy agenda item has been achieved. this time the white house is moving forward with them in order to try to persuade americans to change their minds on this issue. i think that's where there was a little bit of disagreement here on the conservative side. >> bill: but they'll bitch about anything that obama does. as far as i'm concerned this whole national attention this focus and this demand for action really was triggered -
. and it is what gave george h.w. bush to take that executive action that he took banning some rifles. in 1989, two months after that schoolyard massacri in stockton, california. years later, president clinton followed in his footsteps. president clinton, in 1998, took executive action as president to ban the importation of more than 50 different kinds of semiautomatic assault weapons. and it was in addition to the assault weapons ban. this was further action taken by the president alone in 1998. he took executive action to ban the importation of certain kinds of guns. today, president obama became yet another modern president to use his executive authority for reform of gun-related laws. president obama did not use his authority as his predecessors did. and i mean that in this sense. none of the executive actions that president obama did today have anything to do with banning specific weapons, banning the importation of spefblg weapons the way that previous presidents did. what distinguishes what president obama did today is the breath of policy changes that he enacted. and, yes, on some access to
that president obama did not do what president george h.w. bush did after a school massacre in stockton in 1989. president obama did not use his authority to block the import of weapons that where not generally recognized for sporting purposes. >>> interior secretary, ken salazar the latest secretary to announce he is leaving the obama administration. he plans to step down in march to return to his home in colorado. president obama released a statement praising salazar on his work, saying he helped expand the development of domestic energy resources, while also protecting water, land, and wildlife. >>> actor conrad bane has died at the age of 89. many remember him from tv's "diff'rent strokes." >> i adopted willis and arnold, because they're great kids, and i love them. >> he played the kindly white man who adopted two young african american brothers. the nbc show debuted in 1978, and was one of several comedies that dealt with social issues. he had a long career in television, as wells a on stage and in film. >>> too many phones. not enough numbers. the latest local area code running out, and
, president george w. bush, bill clinton, or ronald reagan? >> bill clinton. >> hmm. poor hoda. >> wait. she got $100? >> so tell us, he was the first? >> it was his second inauguration in 1997, and before you start thinking the white house was super internet savvy, bare in mind bill clinton sent a grand total of two emails during his eight years. >> are you kidding? >> not kidding. >> world has changed. back across to kath. >> chico and california. who elizabeth be one of the performers singing at president barack obama's second inauguration? beyouns yea, kelly clarkson, carly rae jepsen or james taylor. who went be there? >> carly rae jepsen. >> poor hodie. >> this is a bad day. >> you know what, hoda. i figured it out, though. they can take the money that they win and buy your book at barnes & noble. >> they can buy four books. okay. carly rae jepsen, the one. >> i guess he didn't call her maybe. >> girl, i thought you were going to go there. >> although others, james taylor will perform. >> james taylor is old hand at this. he performed at the dnc. beyonce has been a big obama performer.
, but george w. bush actually gave the amounts of each donor ahead of time. so what specifically decision, what decision was made to change that? was it donors' request? was there, you know, could you raise more money by keeping the amounts -- >> sure. i mean, to be honest, none of those were the considerations. my understanding is that we just kind of, you know, each one of these is created anew every four years. they are not continuations of the same committee from four years ago. like i said, we're lucky enough to have some of us who have been asked to do it last time, and this was just the decision in this instance in terms of disclosure. and, again, begin the fact there is the sec requirement, this will all be public. this was our attempt to go above and beyond that and add a layer of transparency. >> yes, ma'am. >> hi, jodi beck. are there telephone numbers we can call if we need to check up on something, maybe an arrest or, you know, something untoward? who is going to be available to answer phone calls? [inaudible conversations] >> ma'am, one more time, your question? i know -- >> over
, advocacy authorities and president clinton and mark theison a former speech writer for president george w. bush. and before we get to the gun debate an unfortunate to impugning the motives of his opponent. and it's pretty clear that that is what happened there, as he is saying those who oppose his measures do so because they want to gin up fear or make money or generate tv ratings. why can't it be, mark, that they just don't see eye to eye with him? >> well, that's exactly what it is. i mean, we have a difference of opinion and people come to their, to their positions with honesty and with conviction and obama can't simply see that. look, that's not the only time he's done that this week, on the debt limit when he had his press conference on the debt limit. what's motivating and propelling the thousands republicans is more than simply deficit reduction, they are suspicious about government commitment to make sure that seniors have decent health care and whether government should make sure that kids in poverty are getting enough to eat. that's an outrageous statement to begin with. on top

frum, a former white house speechwriter for george h.w. bush. also author of "why romney lost." doing very well. here's what the white house press secretary said today about the president's speech preparation. let me play the clip from jay carney. >> all i can tell you is the president in general when he works on a speech writes them long hand on a yellow pad and i've seen some yellow pads filled with writing of late around but i don't have any more details on the speech. >> both of you are former speechwriters. paul, you wrote this on the daily beast. president obama's task is much like the couple renewing their wedding vows after decades of tough but rewarding marriage. if the words are too ideal list, they will seem hollow or saccharine. if too shallow, why even bother? take us inside those words. >> tough task. this president loves an olympian detachment and there's a lot of good in that. we need a president to think of the big picture the only person who is supposed to be thinking for 100, 150 years where we need to be. at the same time, he's a parti
